Stolen Playbook, next step?

Recently had my Playbook stolen.  Looks like whoever stole it is downloading apps on my account.  Would like to shut that down asap if possible but am not sure how to go about it.  Also is there any way to track the playbook through the wifi connection?

Re: Stolen Playbook, next step?

did you register your S/N number, its located above the third barcode on your PB box. If registered they should be able to track & stop activity.

Re: Stolen Playbook, next step?

Change your BB AppWorld password to stop further downloads. Don't really know if that will work but it's worth a try.

'Don't have a clue how to track it down.

Good luck.

Hi totalay!!


Sorry to hear about your playbook.


Were you paying for your apps using PayPal?  If so, you could cancel your account and open a new one
